Susanna Hill’s 2nd Annual Pretty Much World Famous Illustration Contest for Children’s Illustrators!

Susanna Hill is a talented author who writes a fantastic blog for writers and illustrations.  I have participated in her “Would you Read it Wednesdays” and “Perfect Picture Book Friday” and throughout the year she holds writing competitions for children’s stories.  A recent post I read highlighted a competition she is holding for illustrators so I thought I’d share it with you as her competitions are a lot of fun and there are always great prizes.


Here’s a little bit about the competition:

The Contest: Draw/Paint/Create a children’s picture book illustration (no text required – art only) the topic for which shall be:


Above all things, these illustrations are meant to evoke a story, so it is crucial that they present at least one character, a setting, and ideally hint at/suggest some kind of plot or conflict idea.

Illustrations should be 8×10, horizontal or vertical, any medium, posted in jpg at least 72 px.  Illustrators may enter more than one entry if they’re feeling ambitious 🙂
Post:  Your entry should be posted on your blog between Monday June 22 and Friday June 26 at 9 PM EDT (contest deadline!)  You will be able to add your post-specific link to the link list on Susanna’s Monday June 22 post which will remain up all week so that people will be able to come visit and enjoy your amazing artwork.  If you don’t have a blog but would like to enter, you can copy and paste your entry into the comments section on Susanna’s blog.
